    Need a bigger ute or at least a canopy with more room. Chainsaw must be a quick way to quarter animals, leave a bit of a mess though

    3 was enough for me mate.... was very intense hour, first one was the 8 pointer, then ten mins later my hunting buddy hit one while I was dressing mine, packed the two to the track across the river and another one appeared on the river so I got a second... epic morning !!

    Sure,
    We arrived at hut Friday Afternoon, after the usual toss the coin to see who gets the prime bunk and unpack, we headed out for a evening stalk, loads of sign but the weather was against us, headed back to the hut.
    We got up at 4 am, coffee, and kitted up, neither of us slept well. We knew the weather was set to break so the deer will be out,
    Walked about 2 Ks from the hut down stream and crossed the river, sun was starting to light the tops, the wind sorted I sneaked up a bank onto the flats, took about 15 steps in and something caught my eye, I thought in the darkness it was ferns blowing but soon realiased the fern fronds were antlers! Heart racing, I had no shot, I rested against a manauka and watched it feed, decided to give it a whistle and it lifted its head, looked left, dropped it, clean neck shot atabout 35-40 meters, how easy was that!
    My mate carried on while I dressed the stag, 5-10 mins later... boom, he had one, nice spiker! we packed the animals back over river to the track.
    After collecting animals we started back to hut and a my mate yelled out STAG! in the river... I lept out and ran to the bank with rifle, lined up and took a shot, missed... was leading it to much.... watched the stag nearly leap the river in one go, it stopped on bush line just over 100 meters away ( we ranged it afterwards), I’d loose it if it went in, had no side shot so I went for head, I know my rifle is 2” high at 100 so took a guess, pink mist and the stag dropped on the spot, head shot.
    That’s all within about 1:20 from first to third.. thats the short version...

    Got to be happy with that effort- 3 deer on the ground in quick time and close to the hut. Nice open looking country - what part of the country?

    Private land and hut mate, not the usual for here, normally it’s a pretty hard day stalking, this day was gentleman’s hunting, just one of those rare days, right time right place.
